Tim Wilkins Speaker Biography

While watching greats like Hope, Cosby, and Carson, all Tim Wilkins wanted to be when he grew up was a standup comedian.  Today that dream is more alive than ever as he is a 20 year veteran stand-up comedian, TV and radio personality, speaker and writer, who has performed on stages around the world.  He has entertained millions in legendary venues ranging from Radio City Music Hall to chow halls in Afghanistan, to colleges, casinos and cruise ships.

Although Tim’s career path has at times led him in the opposite direction than the conventional wisdom it hasn’t prevented him from experiencing all of the successes he’d always hoped for. Starting out in LA Tim honed his comedy chops on the stages of iconic clubs such as the Laugh Factory and Improv but stage time at those venues was hard to come by. In 1994 when his friend and comedy mentor suggested that he relocate to Florida where there were more “gigs” he packed up his family and took a chance.

This move would turn out to be a good one as Tim soon found himself touring the South and developing into a solid headlining performer. While on one of these tours, his friend and now comedy superstar, Larry the Cable Guy, introduced Tim to an agent that provided a big break as the opening act for Earth, Wind, and Fire.  Over time this would lead to opening for music, comedy, and entertainment legends such as; Aretha Franklin, The Righteous Brothers, Styx, Wynonna Judd, Olivia Newton John, Hall & Oates, Patti LaBelle, Leon Redbone, Ann Margret, David Cassidy, Isley Brothers, John Berry, Loverboy, Belinda Carlisle, Michael McDonald, Ruben Studdard, Suzy Boguss, Billy Dean, Patty Smyth, Marc Antoine, Richard Elliot, Jeff Golub, Dennis Miller, Bob Newhart, Sinbad, Michael McDonald, Louie Anderson, John Waite, and Kevin Nealon.

In every venue Tim prides himself on keeping his comedy clean and hilarious for every age without sacrificing the “edge” that truly makes stand-up an art. No where has that been more welcome than in the corporate market where he has utilized this skill and his ability to customize material for every event. From hometown companies to members of the Fortune 500 Tim has a unique talent to bring laughter to a sensitive corporate culture.

Along the way he also combined his comedy with his love of fitness hosting amateur and professional events including the Mr. Olympia and Fitness Olympia bodybuilding shows seen on ESPN, Fox Sports, and TLC.  He has been a fitness and nutrition writer for Muscle and Fitness, Natural Muscle, BodyCheck.com, Shape.com and a keynote speaker for corporations, colleges, and events such as the IDEA World Expo and Perform Better Summits.  His book, Laugh Your Abs Off!, is due out soon.

In 2005-6 Tim was honored to fulfill his “Bob Hope” dream when his was given the opportunity  to strap back on his camouflage and flak jacket as part of the ‘Comics on Duty’ World Tour, entertaining our troops in Afghanistan, Kyrgystan, and state-side bases.  In addition to fitness one of his greatest loves is our world’s finest Marine Corps and all of the men and women who wear the uniform of the US.  As a Marine Tim jumps at any chance he can to give back to our troops.

After years of making various TV appearances, in 2006 he became the co-host of the Monday-Friday live morning talk show “Studio 10”, on the CBS station in Tampa, FL.  In addition to the normal local talk show duties, Studio 10 gave him the opportunity to pursue another dream; becoming a TV chef with his healthy recipes on a weekly segment called “Tim Cooks Smart”. This garnered Tim and his wife, co-host Michelle Phillips, a Culinary Academy award for best TV presentation in 2009 and a Florida Hall of Fame award for 2011!  Currently he can be seen on national TV in the kitchens of HSN.

Currently he is the face of MOR TV in Tampa and he also been seen nationally on HBO, ESPN2, Fox Sports, TLC, CW, WE Network, “The Daily Buzz”, “BetterTV”, “Daytime”, CMT’s “Next Big Comic” and Nickelodeon's NickMom Night Out.

Tim has hosted both professional and amateur bodybuilding and fitness events since 1998. His experience as an entertainer combined with his love of the sport keeps shows fun and entertaining like no other. This ability has made Wilkins one of the most sought after bodybuilding and fitness emcees in the industry. After hosting regional bodybuilding events throughout Florida, Tim was given the opportunity to host the Jan Tana Classic and Masters Mr. Olympia and took off from there. Jan Tana said she had found a ‘rare gem’ and invited Tim to host every year thereafter.
